Apple could also launch AirPower, a wireless charging mat in the first half of 2019. There could also be a new iPod touch with an upgraded processor apart from new iPhones, MacBooks.

According to a reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the Cupertino-based tech giant could launch a new 16-inch MacBook Pro, a 31-inch 6K monitor, new iPhones with reverse charging and new iPads.

The new MacBook Pro will have 16-inches and 16.5-inches screen with an updated design. This could make the new MacBooks biggest in 2019 after the 17-inch MacBook which stopped hitting the shelves in 2012. Additionally, the 13-inch MacBook Pro could come with 32GB of RAM. At present, the 13-inch variant supports up to 16GB of RAM and the 15-inch variant supports 32GB of RAM.

The company is also expected to launch a 31.6-inch 6K resolution monitor that will come with a ‘mini-LED backlight’ to produce great picture quality.

Coming to the iPhones, this year’s models will retain the design and screen sizes as that of the 2018 iPhone XS and iPhone XR which simply means there will be three iPhones with 6.5-inch, 5.8-inch, and 6.1-inch display sizes.

The new features coming to iPhones include increased band connectivity, frosted glass finish, reverse charging, improved Face ID, bigger batteries and a triple camera system.

Two new iPad Pro models are expected to launch with new processors. The existing 9.7-inch iPad could be upgraded to 10.2-inches. According to the media reports, a new iPad mini with an upgraded processor will also be launched.

Announcing its financial results in January, Apple said its iPhone revenue declined 15 per cent in comparison as compared to 2017. The total revenue from all other products and services grew 19 per cent.

Apple has also revised its revenue guidance for its fiscal 2019 second quarter, and is now expecting revenue between $55 billion and $59 billion and gross margin between 37 per cent and 38 per cent.
